Easy-to-use Digital Tools for Film Analysis

Easy-to-use Digital Tools for Film Analysis

A Workshop with Cinema Studies Professor Marina Hassapopoulou

A workshop focusing on demonstrations and applications of easy-to-use platforms for film/audiovisual media analysis, such as video annotation software, and interactive image annotation tools like Thinglink. In addition to brief how-to tutorials, this workshop will also give examples of how to productively incorporate those tools into multimedia assignments for Film and Media Studies courses. A selection of student projects from past courses I taught will be included, including collaborative DH class projects, and participants can also share their own examples during the workshop.

[Note: The workshop will be accessible enough for tech novices, in hopes of encouraging more educators (especially in Film Studies – an area where there is demand for this type of workshop) to think of alternatives to the traditional academic paper, for instance.]

We recommended that attendees bring their laptops.
